john kerry calls it an invasion and occupation. just how bad is it and what can be done? we will cover all the angles. vitali klitschko, leader e of the ukrainian revolution, on his country's response to russian aggression. madeleine albright, the former secretary of state, brzezinski zbigniew, the former national security adviser on what the united states can and should do. then, is vladimir putin really the bad guy in all of this? i will introduce you to a very prominent expert who says niet. >>> and foreign policy at the oscars, one of the films up for best documentary tells the story of egypt's revolution brilliantly. i will speak with the director of the movie "the square." >>> but first, here's my take. in a strange act of historical coincidence it was 60 years ago this week that soviet leader nikita handed the premier over to the ukraine. it might not have seen a big deal in those days. everyone was part of one, big, unhappy soviet union. but that has created today's geopolitical crisis. russia has made its move. it has essentially detached crimea from the ukraine government's c
of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to stand together in the next week to deliver serious financial assistance to ukrainian economy that is weak and is growing weaker as this crisis persists. a $1 billion aid package is a good start, but our real work must happen within the structures of the i.m.f., which can provide the potentially tens of billions of dollars necessary to fully right the ukrainian economic ship. and while ukraine does need to undergo e

from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent troops into the country of georgia in 2008 in a more sort of visible, tangible invasion, tanks rolling across the border. there are no tanks rolling across the border but you do have a public authorization of force and more of maybe you can call it a stealth invasion, perhaps. you have the helicopter
of state john kerry flat out calling it an invasion. >> russia chose a brazen action and moved in on its forces with a completely trumped up set of pretext, claiming that people are threatened. and the fact is that's not the act of somebody who is strong. that's the act of somebody who is acting out of weakness and out of certain kind of desperation. you just don't in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country. >> fox news radio roo reporter jessica gulaher joins us live from the ukraine peninsula. what's going on? >> reporter: what's going on, a lot of russian troops have ascended on the crimea peninsula and basically haven't taken over the peninsula. but there hasn't been any bloodshed. they captured one of several installments here, one is here. and ukrainian soldiers basically surrendered. they couldn't leave the base where they were. and also, the russian forces have as taken over, what we understand is the naval sea here. ukrainian naval commander basically surrendering saying he did not want to be a part of this and being tried for treason. and now
house, and vice president joe biden joined in by videoconference, and secretary of state john kerry also as videoconference joined in, and top officials at the meeting such as the director of intel jeps, and the joint chief of staff, and the secretary, and they were looking at the policy options in respect to ukraine and a lot of movement at the white house today when it come ts to the issue of ukraine. this white house and this president if you look at that statement very, very deeply troubled by the events unfolding. >> and well, jim, we also saw in the phone call, the readout from the phone call with president putin, but the first time that president obama has spelled out a penalty for russia's actions there and planning to cut off the attending the g-8 summit, and costs, he specified one of the potential costs, but as it escalates the white house has to consider other options if it does not have the teeth to the push the russian forces back. are you hearing about what the other options might be that the national security advisers are considering? >> well, at this point, and we should
kerry is there to try to show support. putin is scared of democracy on his borders. >> the question -- >> using his assets. >> jeffrey, would putin have made this move, say, in 2004, 2005 with george w. bush president in 2004 and 2005? would he believe he could move with impunity the way he did against bush? >> it's not a -- >> hold on. i got to clear this up for everybody else so this isn't a bush versus obama deal. george bush was exhausted in 2008 and putin made the calculated move that after seven years of war, he wasn't going to step on the gas and get involved in something like that. jeffrey, the question i'm asking. >> let me answer it by analogy. in 2003, when the u.s. invaded iraq, the iranians froze their nuclear program because they thought they were next. 2004 and five they saw america get bogged down in iraq because of terrible planning, among other things, and decided to restart and walked away from the nuclear negotiations. there is a demonstration effect we are talking about and right now, if you're a putin or you're a an assad, you do say, look, america is exhausted
that secretary kerry would like and how, the so-called modern view, with the balance of power was a thing of the past and we only saw in the 19th century. that's not how they view the world, and it leads me to play this is something we should be recognizing as well. i leave you with this. the real question is, we will be going through a specific measures about things that should be done here and we will discuss that in response to the question, i believe some of the details for that but i will leave you with two thoughts. the short run to me is not as important as the long run. the long run i think we need to restart rebuilding our strategic position, signal that american retrenchment is over. this will go a long way to signaling to russia and to china and other countries that is long grip and american power is going to be reversed. and the second thing we have to start thinking carefully about is we need to stop thinking of military power as a metaphor for military intervention. we used to understand very well that the deterrent force of military power, today much of that has been lost p

kerry said united states would do a billion dollars in loans guarantees, so that could be at risk, and as you mentioned it needs to do billions more, most likely coming to the at national monetary fund of which the united states is the biggest shareholder. just this morning ukraine's economic minister said they need 15 billion, they need 15 billion over the next two years from the imf. we could be on the hook for some of that as well. charles: thank you very much. i want to get back to katy mcfarland. you have an opinion piece on foxnews.com. let's go through them one by one. >> okay. immediately we will rethink the missile shield that president obama cancelled in poland, the czech republic. that gets the russians very nervous. and then we do the economic stuff, we say the defense budget. the same day the russians were saying when negotiating with new bases around the world and we will restore and revitalize the military base in the former soviet union. and then the third thing is start hitting them economically. putin has played a long game here. he wrote his graduate dissertatio
